It could be many things: If you turn on the car and hear clicking and no contact it could be your starter. The clicking could also mean your battery is dead. You have obviously caused flooding of gas and that's why the smell of gas in the car. OPEN YOUR WINDOWS when trying to find out what is wrong with your car. To check your battery lift up the hood and you'll see a square box with 4 big screws on the top (talking woman talk here) but they are called "terminals" and if you see white flaking clumps around the terminals (those big screws) then they are corroded and this could be your problem. BE SURE YOUR CAR IS SHUT OFF and take a rag and clean these terminals. Then reattach them. The prongs are easy to slip around each screw (terminal) without a problem. Get back in the car and try starting it. If that doesn't work then try to get someone to use their battery charger to see if that will get it going. If this works it's time for you to get a new battery to be on the safe side. If it's your starter then you will need a good male friend or relative to help you with the starter and if that is not possible then you will need a mechanic to check it out. ALWAYS GET A FULL ESTIMATE FOR WHAT THE COST WILL BE BEFORE HAVING THE WORK DONE. Ask a neighbor or a person at work who they use as a mechanic so you don't get a high bill when it's not necessary.
